Frequently asked Questions

Here are some common questions that are asked by our clients.

What can I claim for?

Personal injury claims typically cover several categories of damages:

Medical Expenses: This includes both past and future medical costs related to your injury, such as hospital bills, doctor's visits, surgeries, medications, and therapy.
Past and Future Loss of Earnings: You can claim compensation for income you've lost due to the injury and any potential future earnings you might miss out on because of it.
General Damages for Pain and Suffering: This category covers the physical and emotional pain, suffering, and reduced quality of life resulting from your injury.

It's essential to consult with a attorney to assess the specific details of your case and determine the types of claims you can pursue.

What should I bring to my first consultation?

When meeting with your attorney for the first time, it's crucial to provide all relevant information and documents related to your incident or accident. This may include:

Incident or Accident Reports: Any official reports filed with the police, workplace, or other relevant authorities.
Hospital Records: Medical records detailing the extent of your injuries, treatment received, and prognosis.
Photographs: Any photos taken at the scene of the accident, of your injuries, or of any relevant property damage.
Witness Statements: If there were witnesses to the incident, their statements can be valuable.
Proof of Identification: Personal identification documents, such as your driver's license or passport.

Providing this information at your first consultation will help your attorney assess the strength of your case and guide you on the next steps.

What does 'No win, No Fee' mean?

"No win, no fee" is a common arrangement in personal injury cases. It means that if your claim is successful, your attorney's fees are capped at a predetermined percentage of the compensation amount, which is 25%. However, if your claim is unsuccessful, you won't be responsible for paying your attorney's fees. This arrangement makes legal representation more accessible to individuals who may not have the means to pay upfront legal costs.

How long do I have to claim?

Personal injury claims typically have a three-year deadline (statute of limitations) from the date of the incident. This timeframe may vary by jurisdiction and case specifics, so consult an attorney promptly if you're unsure.

How long will my claim take?

The duration of a personal injury claim varies based on complexity but usually ranges from 3 to 5 years. Cases settled out of court tend to be faster. Your legal team will keep you updated throughout the process.
